From Noon there was
a joint military/civilian ‘Farewell Festival’ on Budds Lane Sports
Fields which included arena events, military displays, entertainment,
activities, historical information, food & drink and a fun-fair. The event,
which embraced community and civilian life in the town, was bought to a
close with a fantastic Red Arrows flypast followed by the Beating
Retreat performed by the band of the Royal Logistics Corps.
